The lifestyle blogger and actress Eva Amurri has always been close to her mother, Susan Sarandon. Amurri, a career woman and a mom of three, has always credited her mother for teaching her to have confidence and independence from a young age. “I think the biggest lesson from my mom was just the permission to want a lot for yourself, career-wise, as a woman,” said Amurri in a 2023 interview with PEOPLE magazine.
The “Thelma & Louise” star has been by Eva’s side through every major life event, particularly when it came to helping her with her kids. “I’ll be there when she melts down and be someone to take the baby in the middle of the night,” said Sarandon after Eva gave birth to her first child. Now that’s a good mom!
Lourdes Leon and Madonna
Growing up as Madonna’s daughter must have been a wild experience, having all the attention that comes with being the family of the “Queen of Pop”. However, it seems that, despite some turbulent years, Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s eldest daughter, remains close to the pop diva. Leon has become a world-famous model and singer of her own, and her mother has always been supportive of it.
In a 2021 interview, Lourdes declared, “I would be nothing without the woman who brought me into the world. I revere her.” And clearly, the feeling is mutual, because mother Madonna never misses an opportunity to say how proud she is of Lourdes.
Rihanna and Monica Braithwaite
One of the most influential singers of the 21st century, Rihanna is still topping the charts to this day. The Barbadian beauty is a success in music, acting, and business, and she never forgets to thank her mother, Monica Braithwaite, for always being there. Calling her “one of the strongest women I know, if not the strongest,” Rihanna has been open about her closeness to her mother, especially after her parents divorced.
For Braithwaite’s birthday in 2019, Rihanna posted a beautiful tribute on her Instagram: “Happy Birthday to my sweet, beautiful mother. Thanks for teaching me that strength, love, forgiveness, sacrifice, hard work, and helping others... Love you, and I appreciate you! Thank You God for choosing this wonderful being to be my mom!” Now that Rihanna is a mother of two, she is even more adoring and thankful to her mamma.
Gigi Hadid and Yolanda Hadid
This supermodel mother-daughter duo is Gigi and Yolanda Hadid. The former supermodel and star of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”, Yolanda Hadid knows a thing or two about the modeling industry. “She prepared me for how cutthroat and competitive the industry is, and always taught me to be my personal best,” says Gigi about her mother.
Being the older sister of three, Gigi Hadid has a very close relationship with her mother, especially after becoming a mother herself in 2020. Yolanda has long praised her eldest daughter for her work ethic and her “kind heart.” In an interview with “People Magazine” in 2018, Yolanda stated, “What makes me proud of my children, more so than even their success, is that they are polite and respectful."
Alicia Silverstone and Didi Silverstone
She will always be the fashionable Cher from the 90s cult classic “Clueless,” but the truth is Alicia Silverstone was acting long before that. Her mother, Didi Silverstone, worked as a flight attendant for “Pan Am,” but somehow, she managed to never miss one of her daughter’s auditions. “She took me to all the try-outs and stayed until the end,” revealed Alicia in a 2019 interview.
Alicia has often said that her close relationship and parenting style with her own son, Bear, comes from the loving and supportive childhood she had, thanks to her parents, especially her mother. Unsurprisingly, Didi is also a fantastic grandmother who spends any free time she has with her adorable grandson.
